. >>> in the meantime the white house admitted in the form of jay carney, it's true, some medical policies don't meet the affordable care act's minimum standard and so they don't qualify, you won't be able to keep them. think about that. the white house is now admitting that they have known for, as it turns out, since 2010, according to nbc news and the "wall street journal," they knew back then that there are many, in fact millions of americans who would lose their health insurance policies. and yet the president was out all the way from 2009 until recently saying this. >> we will keep this promise to the american people. if you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor. period. if you like your health care plan, you'll be able to keep your health care plan. period. no one will take it away. no matter what. first, if you're one of the more than 250 million americans who already have health insurance, you will keep your health insurance. this law will only make it more secure and more affordable. >> anyone frustrated yet? what was sold versus what's being told to the american people now

those statements more directly? >> there's no question he's going to have to do that. jay carney is going to brief in a few minutes. he's going to get hammered with these questions. this is a case the white house did not prepare the american people for what their vision of the law was going to be and now that it is colliding with the poor rollout of the nonfunctional website, this entire thing is looking like a mess and they have to fix it. if they can't fix it, we're not going to have the law. >> john harwood, thanks very much. >>> we have had one person at cnbc today dedicated to getting a comment or a representative from the white house to come on and talk about obama care. he sent three e-mails and three calls and the white house got back to us about 20 minutes ago saying that no one was availablep for our air time. we should note over the past three weeks the white house has approached us twice about having senior communications adviser david see miss on "power lunch" to talk about obama care and we did have him on both of those times. bertha coombs back with us. how is this
paraphernal parenthetically in a speech. now, today, jay carney, this is the most telling thing i've seen all year he said of the people losing their health insurance. the 5% currently purchased insurance on an individual market and that market has been like the wild west. it has been underregulated. in other words you're an outlaw if you're in that market. it's your fault you're losing your insurance. >> well, he's not saying it's your fault. he's saying we've now regulated the market. those people had no other choice but to go. they didn't get it from their employer. >> how does he know that? these are people freely bought insurance and he's saying you bought the wrong kind of insurance. maybe they like their insurance. >> i think what tucker has just established that it wasn't an unforced error but it was absolutely forced because they couldn't have got the 60 votes if they'd turned to the country and said by the way you cannot have what you have now because all the polls show, again, most americans had insurance and most were happy with it. >> the white house -- you referenced this, linda

, the white house yesterday, jay carney effectively said yes there are some plans that don't meet the minimum standard of the affordable care act. that is, in fact, true. they would say though our plan allows you to get benefits. yes maybe your premium goes up, your deductible goes up but you have more benefits including for mental health. what did the white house tell you >> they basically made the same point. they said look anyone who is losing their insurance is losing their insurance because it doesn't meet our standards. and that this new policy will give people more protection, they can't be dropped because they get sick, they by and large will have a richer package of benefits. the problem is a lot of the folks we talked to who have received these notices first were shocked that they got them because they thought the president had told them they wouldn't but also they didn't like the government telling them what they had to buy. and they in some cases were very happy with the more bear bones policy that they thought met their needs, and cost them less. now there was one individual who
